    Time for run a 'online reputation management' campaign.

    Just like how you do SEO for your money, start making web2.0 properties, profiles and others, and rank them.
    Hopefully, you will be able to rank them fast enough to bury that 'negative review', to minimize the damage.

    Mostly bad review are ranking for your brand keywords or review keywords. you can utilize high PR web2.0 properties and create youtube video and target those keywords to outrank them.

    Negative SEO is wrong man. Not just that, neg SEO wont work on his competitors site if it is established.

    Plus bad karma...

    Don't go there,

    I believe he was referring to building up more 2.0 properties, then outrank that site. Not neg SEO.

    Try this if you cant outrank .
    If that shop site as ability to comment , make a comment to your bad review . And post as a customer care executive that you are sorry blah blah will be willing to help blah blah refund blah blah.
    This will show that you have a well established biz and care your clients .

    online reputation management is the way to go.... get some of your customers and family memebers to leave soem reviews, be persistent. Let some time pass and you will see results.

    Another option is to mail all your existing clients and ask them to post a positive review.
    Maybe include a bonus or something free as a thank you.

    If you plan to do this, make sure you do it by batch. Otherwise, if you have 10,000 customers in your database and you request for positive reviews all at once, you might get flagged.
